LNP DELIVERS HOT STEAMING PILE TO DUGONG/TURTLE "PROTECTORS", RIDDELL MAD AS HORNET BUT SMILES WHILE KING SHIVS HIM IN THE BACK



Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King, Member for MacKenzie, was made time and time again on the 4CA Cueball Talkfest to promise that all dugong and turtle hunting would be stopped by the LNP on Green Island, Michelmas Cay, and other "tourist sensitive" areas at the very least.


This demand by Colin Riddell, who is the junior Bozo and coat holder in the Bob Irwin traveling circus, was said to be the MINIMUM that they would accept for support of an LNP government.  They also demanded a complete halt to native hunting of these animals, and the prosecution of the illegal sales of turtle and dugong meat.  The latter was a charge made continuously by Riddell, with never any evidence from any government investigator.


So today, Gavin King delivered!  In a chorus of fanfare trumpets, King and the LNP announced - - -  well and truly nothing.  A new requirement that dugongs and turtles can be hunted only in accordance with existing animal welfare laws.  Which to most people means don't hack 'em up when the ABC is hanging around with a camera crew.  The equivalent of a parking ticket for indigenous hunters.  


In short, Riddell and Bob Irwin have been well and truly fucked by the LNP.  NO ban on hunting these so-called "endangered" animals.  NO ban on hunting them at Green Island where the tourists are said to be "horrified at the slaughter".  (Given the majority visiting Green Island are Chinese tourists, who commonly eat turtle, anteaters, cats, dogs, snakes, bears, hobos, and virtually every other animal, with "home butchery" considered the best way to feed your family, these claims of horror can only be said to apply to the social elite like John MacKenzie.)  Never mind that there's always been an undercurrent of racialism in the whole issue.


THIS MAN WAS JUST SODOMISED BY
HIS POLITICAL MASTERS,
PROFESSIONALS ALL.  SO WHY
IS HE STILL SMILING??
Here we see Riddell on the Gavin King Facebook Apology page claiming "victory" while he takes it right up the keister from his LNP mates.  Wonder how much dosh went along with this smile?  Or do you just like it this way, Colon???


The fact is, there won't be one less turtle kebab or Dugong Parmesan served as the result of this LNP "policy".  It's a payback with counterfeit currency.






Get used to it, Cairns.  This is the Campbell Newman "modus operandi".  Big fanfare, claims of "delivering to the people of Cairns", with a sniggering expectation that the fucking hillbillies in Cairns are too stupid to read the fine print.  Or even the big headline.


With John MacKenzie the shrill screaming voice of this action, demanding we stop horrifying our tourists, bellowing that we're losing all our tourists to this kind of savagery, how much money will be required to get him to take his medicine and STFU?  


Should be fun. . . .

Well at least we may stop hearing the racist rants from Col Riddel and Gavin King. Traditional hunting is probably the least of the dugong and turtle worries though they have stopped in some areas due to dropping numbers caused by the rest of us. Our fishing, boat strikes, farming pollution is what is actually killing them in vast numbers. If he really cared about the animals rather than trying to find a self righteous way to be racist, he would attack the real culprits. meranwhile go to the cattle areas and some traditional methods of our own like electrical prodding will soon have you think vegan. Gavin King is so ethno centric it scares me.

This issue was deliberately exaggerated for the benefit of the hysterics and for political gain.
To infer that all aboriginal and torres strait islander peoples were barbaric was monstrous.

Mick said...

No Riddell is still banging on in the Compost today about the nasty greenies etc with F*ckwit Phil feverishly frothing in chorus in the comments sections - yet again. Phil, you really need some new material mate. Either that or a job.

What the hell is this going to do to save the dugong and turtle from extinction? Aren't they vulnerable animals? And all the LNP can do is to talk about killing them kindly. WTF???

Anonymous said...

@ anon 20/6/2012 08:16. Got any facts to support your argument? Never read so much BS. Bryan Law would be proud you. Excuse me while I tuck in to a nice steak. MMMMMMM

Mz. Elly-May Clambutt said...

Agreed jim-bob. This action by the LNP is just inadequate and will do nothing to prevent these animals from dying out. Some friends were talking about it last night. We can get fined for killing a flying-fox, no matter how humanely, because the flying fox is listed as "vulerable", however now the LNP decide it is alright to kill other vulnerable species like the dugong and turtle as long as it is done "humanely". It doesn't make any sense at all.

ruby red dress said...

Was saving the dugong and turtle from extinction ever considered? You are correct jim-bob jnr. This action won't save them from dying out.

Dean said...

Seems like Gavin King got out at the right time. All his Compost colleagues are either going to have to move south or seek new employment.

It's a shame that the Post will no longer run out of Cairns, but with 19 eastern seaboard locations to be reduced to 5. I doubt the Cairns outpost is one they'll be keeping, when Melb, Canberra, Syd and Brisbane are the obvious first 4.

Dugongs Shmugongs.

ruby red dress said...

Yes Dean and I can't see the rabid anti unionist Gavin King saying or doing anything to keep the staff here either. He's had his job, and a nice cosy opportunity to promote himself while Editor-at-large while destroying the only chance Cairns had of getting an iconic building etc. At least some of the staff at the Cairns Post now may have some glimmer of understanding that King is only about King.

jim-bob jnr. said...

It will be interesting to see if News Limited's unions, or what is left of them, do something to try and protect their jobs. I can only imagine King would be very supportive, offering the smooth oily palaver that he does, and convincing everyone of his sincerity. Then, when Newman introduces anti-union legislation through Queensland Parliament, which I predict he will, King will be there voting enthusiastically and with fervour to destroy the unions. People don't bother to read Hansard so they wouldn't see his duplicity. Of course, King would know this too. So much for the staff of The Cairns Post, their families and everyone dependent on having a regional newspaper. They're rooted as well.

Only heard a bit of tow ball's weekly spray on 7 news before I muted the sound, but was he really going off about government money going to Townsville instead of Cairns? Surely he would be pleased with his efforts.

Bob R. said...

Mackenzie would be delighted Anonymous above. Now he has a platform to spruik for the next few years, "Cairns gets nothing from the Government, Townsville gets everything." Round and round he goes. Sucks people in over and over.

Dean said...

It's only the second time i've heard the man speak and given his popularity, I thought he might at least be a gripping speaker, but his argument was filo thin and his delivery was clearly reading/reciting a script. Definitely has a head for radio, he looked like a schoolboy with his tie and collar.

King will escape with less scruitiny now. Although there'll still be a Cairns Post, there'll be fewer journos in Cairns to chase stories and less involvement in festivals etc.

Anybody thought of starting a weekly newsletter(emailed).

Anonymous said...

Good point Dean. King will escape with less scrutiny which will be why he will do nothing to help his former mates at The Cairns Post. What a cushy term in office he is going to have.

Anonymous said...

Anon 20/6/12 22:53. All the evidence suggests general human activity especially shark nets, trawler fishing, industrialisation. North of Cooktown is the most stable dugong and turtle population in the world because only traditional hunting and soem fishing affects the numbers. Not the rest of our destructive activity.

Anonymous said...

Great photo of King with his misses at a swanky fashion show with champers & nibbles (Cns Post 19/06/12) but 'allo 'allo there he is resplendent wearing a bright rainbow tie. Does this mean that he has 'jumped the fence' and is now in full support of getting funding back for the LGBT community taken drastically and without consultation from Q'land Assoc. for Healthy Communities? Can live in hope I guess.

Dean said...

In the Courier Mail online today, Campbell Newman's email to staff says his government has made $186.5 million in savings. Since about $100 million has come from Cairns, it doesn't look like the rest of the state will be doing it as tough as us. (Although I think he means he's saved that much in ongoing labour costs by slashing temp staff who are the hardest working in the public service)

Pearl the Parrot who constantly criticised the previous mayor and council will be delighted that her beloved new council has just increased rates at the Wonga Beach caravan park by 60 % ! The local are up in arms, but hey that's " economic realism" and "user-pays" for you. That's just the start if things to come, Pearl. I'm sure you'll be rapt. It's what you have been agitating for al this time. No CEP, no CBD renewal and now another nail in the tourism coffin. Go Bob and Campbell and let's turn this place back into the sleepy redneck town it once was...

Anonymous said...

Excuse me but does anyone know if the business community support this bunch of idiots? King seems to have been sent off to brainwashing camp. He speaks cut and paste master spin template. Ok voters can be stupid enough to fall for the crap but is the business sector also that daft? Thanks , let me know.

Hunter said...

I see you and your contacts have obiviously missed the announcement of the Q- Tourism forum in Cairns next week. i hope all of you here will be attending and putting forward your views in the same colourful manner you do here.
As for C Ridiculous he changes his spots more then a lion fish as to who is in power. But must admit under an LNP government he seem's to have gone back to behind the scenes lobbying rather than the attempts to embarrass a labour government into action from the front pages of media organistaions.

Anonymous said...

Wonder what sort of idiot gives thanks for absolutely nothing?

Anonymous said...

He got nothing yet is saying he has had a victory, Riddell is a brainless clod who doesnt even understand that Dugongs and Turtles will still be hunted and eaten, just now you need to kill them better..what a fuckhead go drown yourself ridell you dugong fucker.

Jethro Bogan said...

Yeah Hunter, the Q Tourism forum. If The Cairns Post are saying the truth then we're gonna get a big fat total of 5 more police officers on the beat in the CBD because of "violence". Gee whillikins, we won't know ourselves. I mean how many times have we been given "extra police officers on the beat" since 1990?? Christ almighty himself, I remember getting extra foot patrols, police on bicycles, ATSI liasion police several times over. There's always a huge fanfare, The Cairns Post has photographs all over the front page, then just as suddenly the extra police just sort of vanish into thin air. Here we go again.

Liz said...

I don't believe the poor man knows he has been "sold a pup" as the saying goes. Agreed,it isn't going to save either species from extinction.

Russell Constable said...

Has anyone else noticed that Gavin King has removed his press release "Fight to stop hunting of dugongs and turtles" from his website. A pre election promise he could not keep so he seems to have decided to bury it. Bet he is pissed it is still available on line as it is recorded in parliamentary notes!

jim-bob snr. said...

Russell, I don't trawl through Kings site on the net, however I have noticed The Cairns Post have removed a lot of his stuff from their archives. Now you see it, now you don't. I guess that is one of the negatives about online information; its easy to get rid of it, and, of course because there is now so much information out on the net people forget very quickly. I keep hard copies of political news Im interested in to keep track of the brazen lies and political skulduggery going on.

JOHN MACKENZIE'S HILLBILLY WATCH said...

jim bob snr:
Not to worry. We've archived everything that was there when he announced his preselection, and I know others have done the same.

His words will live on.

jim-bob snr. said...

Good to know Hillbilly.

Russell Constable said...

Very good to know hillbilly. I have also taken screenshots. Basically Gavin King made a pre election promise he had no intention of keeping and now he is in power has tried to bury it. I challenged Colin Riddell to hold Gavin King to task and was told in no uncertain terms to piss off! One also has to ask why Colin Riddell posted photos of himself kissing Warren Entsch on Colin's Facebook page and proclaiming what a champ Warren is when Warren openly opposes any moratorium on hunting and supports the hunting of turtles and dugong. Something stinks there big time. I concluded this is more than compromise and Colin has sold out to his LNP mates. By the way the turtle hunting pledge by Gavin King is available at http://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/Documents/TableOffice/TabledPapers/2011/5311T5919.pdf Gavin can run but he can't hide!

Miss Chief said...

Are Bryan Law and Colin Riddell related? They seem to come from the same gene pool - the shallow one. How a supposed dugong/sea turtle campaigner can claim this as a success just shows how stupid he is. Talk about a sell out. As IF this will be policed. As IF this will see an end to the slaughter. If the ALP had have gone along with this half baked plan, then Riddell would have been screaming blue murder. But because it his beloved LNP, he has settled. Sold out. FFS Riddell - don't do the dugongs and turtles any more favours will you?

Russell Constable said...

Received this little pearl via email from Colin Riddell this morning under the poetic title "This will go global the next time I read your lies" ...Tell you what Col if your reading this I will get the ball rolling for you! Here it is...
"There is a fool spreading libelous allegations as to the campaign his name is Russell constable.
The campaign is in two parts one a state government role, that was and is to change the cruelty laws to at least make it prosecutable.
That has been achieved.
Thestate lnp can legally do nothing else but ask for voluntary limits on killing dugongs and sea turtles.
The state government can only ask native title holders to not kill in green zones in the great barrier reef.
It has to be voluntary as they have no regulatory powers.
At the last election they promised to do that,they have been in power only two months,so we must give them a chance.
The second part is a moratorium on hunting dugongs and sea turtles and determine the numbers left,this is a federal issue not state.
The last part is a total ban on hunting in green zones this can only happen at federal level.
I have been openly accused of being a lnp muppet,nothing could be further from the truth,in 2001 I cost the coalition/lnp $330million dollars.
It is a marriage of convenience as the labor party (my party)will not act.
These are the facts and Russell constable should stop spreading lies"
Fire away Col because the facts speak for themselves. Blackmail or threats from you won't silence me mate so write what you want. I care only for the truth and it honestly doesn't worry me if you write something bad about me every day. No amount of mud slinging at me will save you from looking like a blackmailing LNP muppett at the end of the day Col... Cheers Russ

ruby red dress said...

There was something in The Compost today about five dead turtles being found. As I recall it, no-one seems to know what killed them.
Frankly I think the issue is much bigger than just looking at the issue of cruelty slaughter. We as a Nation should be looking at doing all we can to save both these animals from extinction.

Colin riddell. Is a idiot looking for attention. Collins and bob irwin is working with urban jungle radio from America.urban jungle owner Danny mendez has been fined countless times for selling illegal reptiles he catches in new York woods and sells them on the black market. I thought Collins was a saint for animals .can not teach a old dog new tricks isn't that right Colin the butcher

Really you have no right to make such comments go back to living under your rock you grubs!!!!! Katie wunsch... Not afraid to use my name!!!!!

I have just read through the barrage of misinformation and abuse here. Seems there are a lot of people here with big mouths, a lot of hot air to expend, a keyboard with which to do it, and not much else.
It is easy to see that none of you have actually taken the time to listen to what has been said, nor to inform yourselves of what the campaign is about. Yeah that's right, it's easier to read someone else's vitriol and jump on the wagon, right?
The dugong/turtle campaign is two-fold: one part of involves cruelty with is legislated at state level, the other involves a moratorium which has to come from the federal government. Now Russell and others can bleat until the cows come home about Gavin King and what he said, but these are the facts.
I'd be interested to know what those posting here are doing in the area of animal conservation, or are your efforts limited to slandering others?

Russell Constable said...

Anonymous 20/9/2013 asks what people commenting here are doing in the area of animal conservation? The inference is "Not Enough". My personal response is "Plenty". This year I was presented with a "Champion of Conservation Award" by Queensland Conservation if you doubt my word. Anonymous I can assure you whoever you are it wasn't earned by misleading people to vote for the LNP, attempting to blackmail fellow conservationists, buddying up with politicians that support hunting threatened species or kissing LNP pollies Like Entsch and King. It's over a year since this post was written and guess what Colin and Co are in the papers complaining these laws aren't stopping the hunt!Gee whizz who would have guessed?
In closing the difference between you and me is I don't hide behind a 9 letter word beginning with A.
